Muffin Quest, the eternal search for the perfect blueberry muffin.  Every once in a while, I loves me a good muffin, and that good muffin is usually blueberry.  But I haven’t really found a recipe that I love yet, not that I haven’t tried many of them.  Last night I made two batches, first I made the Bakery Style Berry Muffins from Vegan Brunch and then I made a batch of the Blueberry Lemon Muffins from The Joy of Vegan Baking.  First, the ones from Vegan Brunch:

Good texture, pretty good flavor, but there could definitely be improvements.  The flavor just isn’t quite there for me.  And the ones from The Joy of Vegan Baking:

I really don’t like the texture of these, they’re weirdly smooth.  The flavor is good though, I like the lemon with the blueberry, it’s a nice combo.  So maybe the perfect muffin is somewhere in between, more experimentation is needed!  Do any of you have a great go-to blueberry muffin recipe?

  1. some blueberry muffins (like these martha ones that would have to be veganized -http://www.wholeliving.com/recipe/blueberry-cornmeal-muffins) have cornmeal in them, which I thought might be good… I just use the one from vegweb http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=11738.0.

    You’ve got to try the blueberry muffins with crumb topping from vegweb- they are out of this world! I use this recipe when I make blueberry muffins at the farmer’s market and people rave about them. I use less EB in the crumb topping so it’s more struesel like and doesn’t melt into the muffin. They are so light and fluffy.
